College of Engineering

Graduates from the College of Engineering leave Utah State University with so much more than a college degree. They leave having experienced the thrill of winning a national student competition, or the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty in research labs. These are the experiences that prepare students like Megan Gordon to head into the world and become leaders in their field. Below are a few recent highlights from the College of Engineering:

  • Biological Engineering students have won six consecutive Gold Medals at iGEM – the International Genetically Engineered Machine competition in Boston.
  • Civil & Environmental Engineering students took first place overall at the 2016 ASCE regional conference and won first place in the intercollegiate Steel Bridge competition.
  • Students in the Computer Science department have hosted Utah’s biggest intercollegiate hackathon, HackUState, for two consecutive years.
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering students won second place in the 2016 national Autonomous Vehicle Race.
  • Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering students have taken first place in several NASA-sponsored rocket competitions and the Air Force Research Laboratory design challenge.

We could not provide these excellent opportunities without the help of our loyal supporters. I encourage you to join me in making a gift to the College of Engineering this year to help provide funding for student scholarships, competitions, and research opportunities.
